  • You can either make your own roasted beets or buy pre-roasted ones (look for Love Beets or a similar brand). If you are roasting your own, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Scrub and trim the ends off each beet and rub them with a little bit of olive oil. Wrap in aluminum foil and bake for 45-60 minutes or until you can slice through the center.
  • Decrease the oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Transfer the roasted beets to a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. You should get about ½ cup of beet puree. Alternatively, you can grate the beet with a hand grater.
  • Melt the butter and chocolate chips in a double boiler or in a heat-safe glass bowl set over a saucepan with ¼-inch of boiling water. Stir until smooth, about 10 minutes.
  • Combine the melted chocolate and butter, beet puree, eggs, maple syrup, and vanilla in a large bowl and whisk until smooth. In a separate bowl, combine the almond flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Add this to the wet ingredients and mix well.
  • Pour the batter into a greased 8x8 square baking pan. Cook for 25-27 minutes or until there is a slight bounce back when you press your finger into the top of the brownies. Let them cool completely before slicing into squares.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Enjoy!
